  1. Peace River Incisor?

    Found this on my 2018 trip to Florida, I believe it is a rodent incisor and I would like to confirm that. And if it is, does anyone have any indication as to what variety it belongs to? It's about 2 cm long.
  2. Found these little fragments when looking around in Post Oak Creek near Sherman, Texas. To me they resemble rodent teeth, and I've certainly found non-fossilized ones out there, but these are definitely fossilized. Any idea what they could be? Largest fragment is 16mm long and 4mm wide. Close up shot is the wider end of the fragment, which shows a really cool cross section of the piece.
  3. Metatarsal bone found in cave

    I found this in a large shelter outside of Austin, Texas. The cave was scattered with Flint and various animal bones.
  4. Rodent Cheek Tooth

    Cheek tooth from the theridomyid rodent Isoptychus sp. Collected through screen washing of matrix from the 'White Band' a shallow freshwater lacustrine horizon.
  5. Rodent Incisor

    Lower incisor from the theridmoyid rodent Isoptychus. Collected from a thin lacustrine horizon in the Lower Hamstead Member of the Bouldnor Fm. at Bouldnor Cliff, an early Oligocene locality on the northwest coast of the Isle Of Wight, UK. Identified by mammal specialist Jerry hooker from the Natural History Museum.
  6. Would like specific rodent ID help

    I am interested in a specific ID of this piece of rodent mandible. When I found it I immediately assumed it was mouse but then I decided maybe it is a bit too big for a mouse so I started studying small rodent dentition charts and was amazed at all the variations in the molars. Another hour in the internet rabbit hole (no pun intended). 7/8" in length (22mm), found in Florida's Peace River in a mix of Miocene and Pleistocene material.
  7. squirrel tooth

    Found this in a creek off the Rappahannock River mixed in with Found this in a creek off the Rappahannock River, Virginia mixed in with shark teeth. Curved (semi-circular), chisel on one end (two tone color), hollow on other end. No idea what the stuff stuck to it is.
  8. Rodent lower jawbone ID

    I found this in a creek leading to Grove Lake in Antelope county NE (near Ashfall fossil beds) I've found a lot of bone fragments and teeth there before, but this find was particularly interesting. Anyone know what type of rodent it is from and if it is from the same time period as the many mammal fossils at ashfalls?
  9. rodent jaw?

    Here's another jaw I found on the Brazos River. Hope someone can help me id it. The total piece is 4 inches long and the length of the longest tooth is 3/8inch across the top of the crown.
  10. Found this little mandible today. Galveston Bay dredge spoils late Pleistocene. Unfortunately no teeth but does this look like Leporidae? If so rabbit or hare? Darrow
  11. Vole Tooth #1, Pic B (Microtus sp.?)

    Another pic of the vole tooth.
  12. Vole Tooth #1, Pic A (Microtus sp.?)

    From the album Pleistocene Microfossils from Merritt Island, Florida

    One of the vole teeth I've found in this matrix, from the Melbourne Bone Bed (10,000 - 20,000 years old). Found in microfossil matrix gathered from a dredge spoil island near Merritt Island, Florida.
  13. Rodent Incisor #3, Pic B

    From the album Pleistocene Microfossils from Merritt Island, Florida

    Another pic of the third rodent incisor. This is from the Melbourne Bone Bed (10,000 - 20,000 years old). Found in microfossil matrix gathered from a dredge spoil island near Merritt Island, Florida.
  14. Rodent Incisor #3, Pic A

    From the album Pleistocene Microfossils from Merritt Island, Florida

    One of the many rodent incisors I've found in this matrix. This is from the Melbourne Bone Bed (10,000 - 20,000 years old). Found in microfossil matrix gathered from a dredge spoil island near Merritt Island, Florida.
  15. Rodent Incisor #2, Pic B

    From the album Pleistocene Microfossils from Merritt Island, Florida

    Another pic of the second rodent incisor. This is from the Melbourne Bone Bed (10,000 - 20,000 years old). Found in microfossil matrix gathered from a dredge spoil island near Merritt Island, Florida.
  16. Rodent Incisor #2, Pic A

    From the album Pleistocene Microfossils from Merritt Island, Florida

  17. Rodent Incisor #1

    From the album Pleistocene Microfossils from Merritt Island, Florida

    One of the many rodent incisors I've found in this matrix. This is from the Melbourne Bone Bed (10,000 - 20,000 years old). Found in microfossil matrix gathered from a dredge spoil island near Merritt Island, Florida.
  18. I collected some micro-matrix gravel while hunting a site in the Peace River that had a good abundance of mammal fossils. My hope was that there would be some micro mammal fossils as well. I seemed to have guessed correctly as I turned up this nano molar which I assume is rodent based the size (~1.7 mm diameter across the occlusal surface x 2.7 maximum height to the end of the one remaining root). I tried to get a clear image of the occlusal surface but believe me something this small is hard to hold and keep in the focal plane. Would be interesting to see if Rich or any of the others who might know their tiny mammals can make an ID on this little speck of a fossil. -Ken
